Status of Women in Social Work Education
Sakamoto, Izumi; Anastas, Jeane W.; McPhail, Beverly M.; Colarossi, Lisa G.
Journal of Social Work Education, v44 n1 p37-62 Win 2008
This invited study sought to determine the current status of women in social work education for the special section of the "Journal of Social Work Education." Analysis of the latest data available indicate that gender differences remain pervasive across many aspects of social work education, including pay, rank, job duties, and tenure. Women appear disadvantaged in almost all areas analyzed when compared to men. Additionally, pilot study data collected in Canada suggest that women academics are similarly disadvantaged. The article concludes with a discussion of the limitations of available data, broader contextual issues for women in social work, and suggestions for implementing change. (Contains 3 tables.)
